According to Market Analyst at AMA, the Global Structured Cabling market may see a growth rate of 7.3%. Factors boosting the global structural cabling market include growing demand for high bandwidth, the expansion and modernization of communication infrastructure and the upsurge in the demand for Power over Ethernet.
The exponential growth of data transfer is pushing traditional campus networks to the limit. Compounding the problem is the surge in demand for high-resolution video streaming and intelligent applications — such as facial recognition systems — which add to the already high volume of video traffic from conferences, streaming, and VR devices. Finally, IoT applications, ranging from service robots and intelligent access controls to voice devices and sensors, are regularly deployed on campuses which increases the complexity of the network structure, creating an even greater burden on copper wire networks.
A free testing guide for industrial systems integrators is available from Fluke Networks and Rockwell Automation. The guide provides a comprehensive approach to reduce startup and operational problems related to copper and fiber-optic cabling and allows integrators to deliver more-reliable customer solutions.Testing cabling during the start up process helps avoid many industrial Ethernet failures.
AFL announced that it was recently awarded 12 new patents for technology and developments in connectivity, fiber management, fiber-optic cable, fusion splicing, test equipment and conductor accessory products.
Over the past several years, Leviton has polled network professionals about the type of fiber they would install today, and we have seen solid growth in single-mode. In the March 2020 poll of 281 network professionals, more than 60% said they would install single-mode (OS2) today over multimode types, with OM4 coming in second at 28%. This change is largely a result of decreasing cost and recent standards committee activities that continue to promote more single-mode options for higher speeds such as 200 and 400 Gb/s. As this trend continues, the market in general will find single-mode a more enticing option. Let’s take a closer look at reasons behind its rise.
Watch this webinar from Senko’s Tiger Ninomiya on demand and learn about the evolution of fiber optic connectors in data centers.
Edge computing environments, including edge data centers, reset goals and customer expectations for the housing, protection and management of equipment, including cabling and network gear. In these environments, one-size-fits-all isn’t even a consideration. The concepts, approaches, and best practices described in this document position network administrators for success in establishing the technologies and techniques needed for managing computing at the edge.
New IEEE Std 802.3ca™ was approved by the IEEE-SA Standards Board on June 4, 2020. The standard defines two Physical Layer (PHY) specifications that support 25 Gb/s and 50 Gb/s EPON operation over a single strand of single-mode optical fiber and calls out two new EPON architectures — 25G-EPON and 50G-EPON.
Industrial environments can be extremely harsh settings when it comes to cabling infrastructure. Operators need to meet the high-speed transmission needs of the latest industrial devices without losing any connectivity through interference from temperature, moisture, dust, and increasing distances between endpoints.
Most chemical plants, oil and gas rigs, and power facilities have installed fiber optic cabling to meet those demands, but many of those cabling choices have now become antiquated and can no longer provide the speed and bandwidth requirements placed upon them by the industrial Internet of Things (IoT)-enabled devices.
Technological innovations in the optoelectronics sector, increasing use of electronic gadgets and rising demand for power-efficient devices are the major factors which are driving the growth in the Global Optoelectronics Market.
